mask_face <image>[,<image>..] [options]
The first argument must list one or more MR head image files. If more than one image is specified, you must also specify one of them as reference with -r option. The reference image will be used for spatial co-registration with an atlas, and others will use the reference facial mask.
By default, the input is the DICOM directory of a single series. You can also supply images in Analyze/NIFTI (.hdr/.img pair) format by adding -a option. The output and input formats are the same.
For the complete set of options, run mask_face without parameters.
|-a||Required if you are supplying images in Analyze/NIFTI (.hdr/.img pair) format|
Method used (coating, blur, normfilter, all):
Mask threshold: Threshold is selected automatically (recommended), but can be changed with this option
|-s <grid_step>||Grid Step: Larger grid step will result in coarser looking 3D renderings, and tends to modify more voxels outside of the immediate near-surface|
Control the amount of intermediate output:
|-b||Generate the brain mask used by FSL's bet algorithm prior to face masking and use it to exclude brain voxels from modification|
Toggles the use of manual ROI coordinates
|-r <image>||Required if more than one image is being defaced. The reference image will be used for spatial co-registration with an atlas, and others will use the reference facial mask. (Use the highest quality image for your reference.)|
